Zimmerman's parents sue comedienne Roseanne Barr
The Orlando Sentinel ^ | 3/11/2014 | Rene Stutzman

Posted on 03/11/2014 1:35:29 PM PDT by sheikdetailfeather

SANFORD - The parents of George Zimmerman have sued comedienne Roseanne Barr, saying they fled their Lake Mary home in the middle of the night and have been unable to return because she posted their address on Twitter two years ago.

Robert Zimmerman Sr. and Gladys Zimmerman filed suit Monday in state circuit courtm accusing Barr of trying to incite "a lynch mob to descend" and carry out "vigilante justice."

According to the suit, Barr published their address on Twitter March 29, 2012, a month after their son, George Zimmerman killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager in Sanford but before he was arrested.

I tried watching Roseanne Barf when she did standup, as well as her show, and I never thought she was funny at all. Even Joyless Behar is funnier.

Not to defend Roseanne Barr, but that address remains publicly accessible on Zabasearch - which is essentially an online directory. It’s not like Barr did anything of any real consequence by posting an address that literally anyone with an internet connection could find if they wanted to.

The point is not that it is already publicly available, the point is that Barr specifically tweeted the address to thousands (?) of people. The reason she tweeted the address wasn’t so that her followers could send nice cards to the Zimmermans. If the prosecution can show that she deliberately tried to cause harm to the Zimmermans (which is exactly what she was doing), Barr should be liable for damages.

Spike Lee tried to give out Zimmerman’s address but actually gave out the wrong address. At least she was smart enough to get the address right. She may have no respect for the rule of law but at least she isn’t an ignorant, racist, punk (that I know of). She deserves to be sued good and hard and when they are done with her they should sue everyone else who ever attempted to tweet their address.

These people are not very smart. You can get this public information from many sources. The lawyer they have must be an ambulance chaser. I hope Rosanne doesn’t pee while laughing so hard.

There is a big difference between an address bring findable online and having a celebrity doing the work for thugs by publicly calling it to everyine’s attention.

Next I want to hear how the wrongfully identified family sues Spike Lee for tweeting the wrong address.

I hope these people completely destroy Rosanne financially. Go for it!

I’ve wondered why they have been waiting. There are a large number of people and organizations that should be sued by the Zimmermans for the same reason. Add Al Sharpton to that, add David Letterman to that list, add Jaime Fox, who rekindles the hate every chance he gets, with his Trayvon Tribute T-Shirts. Sue and keep on suing. This is all the haters will understand, not logic or reason.

It’s the hypocrisy of it all —

I’ll bet you can’t find Roseanne Barr’s address anywhere on the Web — and what ever you do find will be a mail drop or facade.

These celebrities like her want the publicity for their careers and yet they also want their privacy protected at the same time.

But they have no qualms about invading the privacy of private citizens who don’t make their living in the public arena.

You mean identifying the people at the address is out there in public record?

Roseanne Barr incited a mob to go to their house and forced them to leave — and their son was not even living there.

It’s about time this lawsuit was brought to her doorstep.

I hope this costs her a lot of pineapples.

so....if this is legal and copacetic, if we can find Roseanne Barr’s home address anyplace in a public source, we are all free to tweet it until the cows come home?

I think tweeting their home address, even though publicly available, in a politically charged atmosphere, could be construed as inciting to violence.

The fact that they probably received actual threats after the tweet, and probably had not prior to the tweet, confirms that Roseanne's actions did incite to violence. And it's reasonable to believe that Roseanne's intent in tweeting the address was to incite violence.

” Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager”

Whenever the media uses this phrase, they’re trying to

LIE

and imply that Martin was incapable of causing injury or death to GZ.

Actually, ONE of Roseanne’s homes is in Hawaii, according to virtual globetrotting:

Good luck finding it, much less getting a crowd to go there.

You’ll probably be shot multiple times by armed security before you get close.

Except Roseanne doesn’t believe in guns, right?

Regardless, Roseanne crossed the line. She used her Twitter account to gin up hatred of GZ and then she posted what she thought was his address online. You can’t stir up a feral mob and then claim you had no part in the trouble they cause. Especially with the feral “youths” barely staying within the boundaries of society anyway.

Not to defend him, but I don’t recall David Letterman doing anything that he could be sued for. Fairly or unfairly, Zimmerman became a public figure which allows him to be excoriated by comedians.

For what cause of action? Not libel, since what she said was the truth. Not invasion of privacy, since the information was publicly available.

The words “comedienne” and “Roseanne Barr” should not appear in the same sentence unless it is in this context:

Roseanne Barr is no longer funny, and should therefore no longer be called a comedienne.

“It’s not like Barr did anything of any real consequence by posting an address that literally anyone with an internet connection could find if they wanted to.”

The availability of the address is not the central issue in the complaint. What is the central complaint is how Roseanne Barr allegedley incited a threat to kill or otherwise cause violent harm to the plaintiffs and/or their properties by defamation of their characters and the character of their son. The complaint alleges she is liable for damages resulting from her role in inciting the threat of such violence, regardless of how the address was obtained.

A major celebrity with an extremely bad attitude and left-wingitis posted the Zimmermans’ parent’s address on her twitter feed to thousands of followers. It caused the Zimmermans to move. I hope the parents have a great ambulance chaser and Rosanne pees in fear.

If someone breaks your nose, slams your head on the concrete, is on top of you, and within reach of your legally carried firearm, I don't think they should be characterized as unarmed. But how unusual it is to see the media call a black teenager black.

That's a pretty weak argument. It's the same as saying that literally to put a gun in the hand of an enraged a-hole is no different than the local outfitter selling the same gun at his store.

Who the H ever heard of "Zabasearch" anyway.
